Guitar Hero Commercial With Rick Pitino, Mike Krzyzewski, Roy Williams, Bob Knight And Metallica

Ladies And Gentlemen, Welcome To The Best Guitar Hero Commercial EVER.

3/29/09 in NCAABB   |   Pat   |   5233 respect



If you watched the Oklahoma-UNC game, then you probably saw this incredibly awesome Guitar Hero commercial, featuring legendary NCAA coaches Mike Krzyzewski, Roy Williams, Rick Pitino and Bob Knight, along with Metallica.

The high point was definitely Bob Knight tossing the drum at Metallica. I mean... it just wouldn't be Bob Knight if he didn't throw something. That, and him saying "we're playing guitar HE-ro". Simply classic.

This is some of the better work by the folks over at Guitar Hero, but it still pales in comparison to the Heidi Klum commercial they ran during football season. Enjoy.

You keep bringing up BC as if they are relevant to this conversation.

No one thinks that BC is a great basketball factory, or tries to act like they are some kind of great basketball team. We know where we stand.

Come play BC on the football field, and then talk smack.

Yeah... that's what I thought.

Yeah the best part of the joke was Duke being ACC champs, beating BC in the process. I like jokes like that and I'll keep laughing every time it happens. Tournament success won't be too far off.

At first I did root for Quin.  Then when he drove the program into the ground and became a perennial loser because he was to busy shoving his face into a pile of blow I was happy to see him gone.  Easy there champ, it was a joke.  But it has been since 2001 since they won a NCAA so I can see why the Duke masses are a little bitter.  Oh yeah, it is MIZZOU, if you are going to trash talk, at least use proper spelling.

Thanks for the correction on the spelling, I always forget how to spell the nick names of teams that have never won a title.

No....lame was Duke's effort in the NCAA's AGAIN this year.

Well hey, we can't all be Missouri who seemingly always gets to the elite 8 and then NEVER makes it to the final four. But I'll bet you did find your way into rooting for them when a Duke alum was their coach, didn't you? Be honest.

Anyway, I'll take some down years in return for the three title years instead of always being the bridesmaid and never the bride, like Missou.

Yeah, but totally not embarrassing for Williams or Pitino. I guess he'll just have to polish his gold medal and not worry about it.

i wonder how much $ it took to get those coaches to do tha commercial.

I'm just wondering how long it will be until all the haters scream that this commercial gives Duke an unfair recruiting advantage because Coach K is in it, just like those Amex commercials he made about a year ago. But oh wait, how about the unfair advantage for UNC and L-Ville too?

Lame, just like it was lame when people complained about the other commercials.

Best commercial, best game, and best band EVAR.

All of  them looked kinda crazy in the pink sliding across the floor but it was still a funny commercial. Roy Williams is way to old to do that.

If only my wife could look as good as Heidi Klum after having multiple kids. What a sweetie!

At least Bob threw the drum set at Metallica instead of a chair.

My question is. Do you think Bobby plays Guitar He-ro with his grandsons. What happens when they score higher than him?

In one interview a few years ago, I think on ESPN, Knight said on camera that he loves playing baseball with his grandkids, but right after his grandson hit a homer off him, he plunked him for showing him up! My guess is that when Knight loses, he breaks the fake guitar over his grandson's back, lol.

That wouldn't shock me at all. Not even a little bit.

Bobby Knight is the only thing that makes this commercial any good.

Actually, my bad on that. It IS Williams, and not Phelps. I fixed the original error.

Oh cool. Nice to have UNC and Duke on the guitars! Two ACC guys, one Big East. Too bad the tourney didn't work out that way too.

Heidi Klum, far superior.

Nice to see Coach K on the axe though, best guy is always on the lead guitar!

So why didn't Roy Williams make the cut for this commerical? Or Izzo for that matter? They are both funnier than Phelps.
